Product Description

The 12-channel Mini Maestro 12 raises the performance bar for serial servo controllers with features such as a native USB interface and internal scripting control.  Whether you want the best servo control available (0.25μs resolution with built-in speed and acceleration control and pulse rates up to 333 Hz) or a general I/O controller (e.g. to interface with a sensor or ESC via your USB port), this compact, versatile device will deliver.  This fully-assembled version ships with header pins installed.

Main Features

  • Three control methods: USB, TTL (5V) serial, and internal scripting
  • 0.25μs output pulse width resolution (corresponds to approximately 0.025° for a typical servo, which is beyond what the servo could resolve)
  • Pulse rate configurable from 1 to 333 Hz (2)
  • Wide pulse range of 64 to 4080 μs (2)
  • Individual speed and acceleration control for each channel
  • Channels can be optionally configured to go to a specified position or turn off on startup or error
  • Alternate channel functions allow the channels to be used as:
    • General-purpose digital outputs (0 or 5 V)
    • Analog or digital inputs (channels 0 – 11 can be analog inputs; channels 12+ can be digital inputs)
    • One channel can be a PWM output with frequency from 2.93 kHz to 12 MHz and up to 10 bits of resolution
  • A simple scripting language lets you program the controller to perform complex actions even after its USB and serial connections are removed
  • TTL serial features:
    • Supports 300 – 200,000 bps in fixed-baud mode, 300 – 115,200 bps in autodetect-baud mode (2)
    • Simultaneously supports the Pololu protocol, which gives access to advanced functionality, and the simpler Scott Edwards MiniSSC II protocol (there is no need to configure the device for a particular protocol mode)
    • Can be daisy-chained with other Pololu servo and motor controllers using a single serial transmit line
    • Chain input allows reception of data from multiple Mini Maestros using a single serial receive line without extra components (does not apply to Micro Maestros)
    • Can function as a general-purpose USB-to-TTL serial adapter for projects controlled from a PC
  • Board can be powered off of USB or a 5 – 16 V battery, and it makes the regulated 5V available to the user
  • Upgradable firmware

The Micro Maestro is the Ideal small controller to use the the Servo Scriber software. Servo Scriber Software (FREE 4 Channel Release)
